From Goethe Institut:

From 10th to 31th of May the award-winning German graphic artist Reinhard Kleist presents selected illustrations at the Goethe-Institut. The exhibition shows extracts and illustrations from six of his graphic novels, including two illustrations from his so far unpublished biography about the singer Nick Cave.

Graphic Novels often deal with historic, political, and social topics. Reinhard Kleist, too, picks up these issues and develops his plot mainly by reference to individual cases. His latest publication “The Dream of Olympia” tells the story of the sprinter Samia Yusuf Omar who represented Somalia at the Olympic Games in 2008 in Peking. Her dream of Olympia ends tragically, when she drowns offshore of Malta during her escape from Islamic extremists.
